Great post 80s, I must confess I have not been to BP for several years now ( usually take in half a dozen or so away games a year) but if/when we do leave BP a lot of great memories will go too.

Yes good post.  I am a bit concerned though by your comment: "I do try to be as brief and simply as I can". This is a very laudable aim.  However, do not try to make your future posts complex or long though!.

I was in the ponny too 80's, It was a thoroughly enjoyable atmosphere, seemed like more than three and half thousand in BP to be fair.


I was there, the day Bradley Wood scored a 35 yarder!

From the black and white striped shirts
To the fish in the sea
You'll hear us singing
Coz we are Grimsby.

You won't hear us crying
But you'll hear us shout
Coz we are the Grimsby
And this is our chant.......... Grimsby! Grimsby! Grimsby!

Trouble is, sometimes you can't make a complex argument in a few words.
It's all or nothing I'm afraid - like I say I do try...

Great post 80s, I must confess I have not been to BP for several years now ( usually take in half a dozen or so away games a year) but if/when we do leave BP a lot of great memories will go too.

Ideally I wouldn't want to leave either. (but that's life !)

Just think with all these things (e.g. support, enjoyment !) wherever you are (e.g. where you are in the table) it's partly what you make of things too.

If I wasn't playing "football manager" (no choice anyway going with older family) I really wouldn't be in the Upper.

I see TRRFC makes a(nother ?) case for what he thinks will make the fans return. (see 'the tipping point')
Perhaps if they all just returned anyway we could slowly turn BP into a fortress and things would be better for everyone ?
All sounds a bit "chicken and egg" and catch 22 to me...

It's not for me to tell others what to do though !
Just I wonder if it's in the fans own hands to a very small extent.
Well who knows cos there's never any guarantees.
But sure we all remember what the atmosphere was like when 7000 turned up to BP for the Scunny game ?
More support = more goals ? Who knows but I wouldn't be suprised...

Personally I don't really see what there is to lose (except their own hard earned cash of course !)

But like I say, not for me to tell others what they should do (can only say what I think is best...)
Especially as I fully admit there are many supporters who have been (and are) FAR more loyal (i.e. they support through thick and thin) than me.
So I'm hardly a 'role model' supporter at all !

And tbh I may be skint in the near future (or at some point) too !
This is why I'm trying to give it a bloody good go this season...
So even if I have to call it a day (or not go as much) when we reach L2, least I'll know it'll all be worthwhile for everyone else.

Good to hear that 80s. Especially considering the debate on here the other week about how to improve the atmosphere.

The great thing is that this shows that spontaneity is not dead. We don't need music piped over tannoys when we score.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

I don't mean about you being skint in the near future 80s! I mean your OP.

To be honest though, not sure if it's just about "spontaneity"
Think Big Chris deserves credit for his call for vocal support before the game.

And if it's there, don't think music necessarily does any harm either.
If we e.g. start withdrawing Mighty Mariner because we SHOULD all be spontaneous, it would just be stupid.
